COMMUNISTS PUT SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS
IN CROSSHAIRS AFTER NEWTOWN BLOODBATH
Subversive Front Groups Gear Up For Massive Assault On Gun Rights
Newtown, CT – President Barack Obama was roundly criticized for exploiting the Newtown Massacre, after a press conference in which he appeared to lay the blame for the event at the feet of Republicans and supporters of the Second Amendment.
In statements made immediately after the Newtown Massacre, the president asserted that “political” opposition stopped “meaningful action” that could have “prevented tragedies like this”, obliquely casting the finger of blame at the Republicans and sparking a furious backlash in the aftermath of the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, behind the 2007 Virginia Tech mass shooting that left 32 dead.
Critics questioned which specific medications the shooter was on, with some calling for an immediate moratorium on any new anti-depressant and anti-psychotic prescriptions until a full investigation could be launched, pointing to the scores of mass murderers who were on psychotropic medication when they committed the violence.
With the events of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting still fresh in the minds of millions of Americans, communist front groups began beating the drums of war, pumping out a steady stream of propaganda aimed squarely at Americans’ second amendment rights.
The Newtown Massacre is a school shooting that occurred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December the 14th, resulting in the deaths of 12 girls, 8 boys, and 8 adults, including the alleged shooter’s mother and himself.
For a nation struggling to grieve and find solace in each other, the comments were widely seen as tone-deaf and heartless, the realm of typical Washington games where politicians strive to direct each crisis to their advantage.
Most of the children examined at the Newtown Elementary School were shot “multiple times” with a rifle, according to H. Wayne Carver II, the chief medical examiner for the state of Connecticut.
“I’ve been at this for a third of a century. My sensibilities may not be the average man, but this probably is the worst I have seen or the worst that I know of any of my colleagues having seen,” Carver told reporters.
The president’s remarks were emblematic of a larger tendency in certain political circles to seize upon unfortunate events and exploit them for the furtherance of one’s own agenda.
Nowhere was that tendency more apparent than in the post-massacre remarks made by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose press conference was roundly condemned as heartless and cynical opportunism.
In his statements, Bloomberg said that “the country needs him(Obama) to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action.”, in an apparent attempt to outdo the president in drawing attention away from the grieving families and on to his personal agenda.
Bloomberg and Obama joined a chorus of voices from the far-left wing of the political establishment openly calling for national bans on firearms.
In a display that shocked and disgusted many Americans, a Democrat representative from New York City brazenly called on the president to “exploit” the deaths of the young children to institute a nationwide ban on guns.
Jerrold Nadler, speaking on a cable television news show, stated that the Newtown tragedy could be the turning point in the efforts of the far-left to ban guns, only “if the president exploits it” and produces “concrete legislation”.
Many national Second Amendment groups fear that the extreme left wing will move quickly to take advantage of the tragedy, using the country’s grief to push through previously unthinkable violations on civil liberties and gun rights.
“They understand that the nation’s psyche will be extremely vulnerable because it is dead children here,” one adviser remarked. “We fear the extremists will attempt to manipulate the country’s grief in order to pursue their own agenda.”
For decades, a debate has occurred within the nation about the limits of the Second Amendment, with the vast majority reaching a consensus that Americans retain the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, according to the freedoms laid out in the founding documents 200 years ago.
However, many fringe elements on the far left wing of the political spectrum have believed that their goals of a centralized government system will not be able to be implemented without the disarming of the American populace.
Until recently, those peripheral groups had been kept mostly at bay by the political establishments on both sides of the aisle, but Washington observers say the current administration has shown a propensity for advancing some ideas previously considered out of the mainstream.
“You have Bloomberg calling for a national ban, you have Democrats explicitly saying they should ‘exploit’ this terrible tragedy, you have the President of the United States indirectly blaming the shooting on the Republicans,” one Washington political insider remarked. “This is not your grandfather’s party and every citizen in this country should be rightfully concerned.”
